I do this everyday. I do a reverse incremental to a folder, retention set to keep 32 days then use file to tape to send 32 days with a full to tape. The last tape of the monthly is kept for 7 years. It is nice when you need to do a restore but don't know what day you need the files from, restore all then pick restore points and look. I need end of day files for 7 years so this way I use less tapes and only ever need to restore 1 tape. The two jobs will run faster than the one job to tape if you use a local disk for a cache, I posted about that before just do a search. I use 32 so if I miss or have an error some day. Every tape has 31 days back on it. I also needs two tapes sometimes and this was the only way I could make a dupe tape.
